Thankful

We had our homeschool co-op Thanksgiving dinner tonight. Christy and Jeff were kind enough to open their home to the whole lot of us. It was such a nice set up. We went earlier in the day to do arts/crafts. The kids made the center pieces for the middle of the tables. Wreaths with autumn leaves and pumpkins and votives to sit in the middle (they looked great LeAnne)!!

We heard the story of the 5 kernels of corn. It was quite interesting. I learned a few things myself. The kids did a few songs for us.

LeAnne and I being dorks. I told you I would make you famous ;) I of course had to give her a hard time cause she had to bend down to get to my level and I even had heels on. Either she is really tall or I am really short OR she had very high heeled boots on, I'm just not sure......

Being with this group of wonderful people (and I truly mean that) made me think of some things to be be thankful for. I am thankful for the life God has given me and the kids he has entrusted to me. I am thankful for a husband that gives us a life that allows me to stay home and raise up our kids, and who is supportive of all my kooky ideas. I am thankful for this new path of homeschooling that makes me often wander why I ever bothered with preschool and kindergarten. I am thankful for the great friends I have who are there to build me up not knock me down (thanks for noticing my earrings Angie, ask LeAnne). Above all I am thankful that I know the Lord and that he sent His son to die for my sins so that I could be saved!! What are you thankful for?

I am thankful for Christ, family and friends. That includes you Lisa! I have to start calling you "cool girl" like Sean does everytime he sees ya. Hopefully we'll see you guys this week.

You probably don't remember this, but in September you asked me a question about my stairs. I don't usually look back at the comments on my old posts, but today I happened to read your comment. You may have already solved the problem by now, but if not here's my suggestion: if the gap is big enough to bother you, you can add quarter round molding to cover it. Just cut it to length and nail it on. There are also other small molding strips that can be used to cover the gap.
Good Luck!
